Last year we showed you this cool crane that folds into the bumper of your truck. This year we've spotted another neat power lifting device, this one completely mobile, which allows a single user to effortlessly hoist and transport up to 390 pounds.

There's also an optional forklift attachment:
After seeing this, I now feel bad for my local UPS guy and his outdated handtruck. Since the PHT folds flat, it could conceivably fit into his truck, but I suppose this isn't really designed to hold a bunch of stacked boxes.
